The Length of Time Contestants Have to Get Ready Can Vary Significantly
True to the show's unpredictable nature — from which five women will be chosen for a group date to who's going home that week — the amount of time contestants have to get camera- (and, of course, date-) ready can vary drastically. For rose ceremonies, it can be several hours. Between an activity and a group date, Catherine Giudici-Lowe told Allure the group is given 45 minutes and access to a hotel room to shower and freshen up. In Paradise, they may have 30 minutes to an hour after being selected for a date.
